Fernández becomes the first act to achieve No. 1s on Top Latin Albums in the 1990s, ‘00s, ‘10s, and ‘20s.
Alejandro Fernández nabs his seventh No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart as Hecho en México debuts atop the tally dated Feb. 29. His 16th studio album opens with 12,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Feb. 20, according to Nielsen Music/ MRC Data. Of that sum, 10,000 were in album sales, mostly owed to a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer with his upcoming tour, while the bulk of the remainder was generated by streaming activity.
“I’m super excited with this achievement,” Fernández tells Billboard. “‘Hecho en México’ is an album that connects the Latin community wherever we are. I’m proud to take our Mexican music to the rest of the world and it will be an honor to reconnect with the audience which always supports me during my Hecho en México tour."
With his new coronation, Fernández becomes the first act to achieve No. 1s on Top Latin Albums in the 1990s, ‘00s, ‘10s, and ‘20s, starting with his first chart entry and 12-week ruler Me Estoy Enamorando in 1997.
